Swansea Duo Join Stars From Man Utd & Liverpool In Best Newcomers List


New Swansea City duo Franck Tabanou and Andre Ayew have both been named in Sky Sports’ top 10 Premier League newcomers list.

Using stats provided by WhoScored.com, Sky Sports have named the pair in their top 10 Premier League summer signings list.

Tabanou, who signed from Saint-Etienne last month, was named No.9 on the list, whilst Andre Ayew, who also arrived from the French Ligue 1 was joint sixth with Manchester United’s new arrival Bastian Schweinsteiger. Swedish goalkeeper Kristoffer Nordfeldt also got an special mention in the article.

The stats are based on how well the players performed last season. Tabanou got an impressive 7.33 rating, and Ayew produced a superb 7.42.

The fact that two of the Swans’ four summer signings have made it in Sky Sports’ list speaks volumes of the outstanding work Garry Monk and the board have done bringing in new recruits this pre-season – and it will be very exciting to see them line up this term.
